3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light color with nice white head. Tons of citrus in the nose. Lots of citrus, fruits, and a few hops on the buds. Pretty light body. Overall not a bad beer to drink all day.
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 Great session IPA. Citrus, pine, grapefruit and fairly hoppy for such an easy drinking low abv IPA. Nothing too wild but everything you want in a session IPA - one of the best. DeanF (2530) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2017
Nice hoppy pineapple aroma. Okay colour didn’t see too well as it was served in a bottle. Crisp and fresh ipa with malt hints and good sourness. Clean finish. Low abv was not harmful. Nice brew, found randomly at some US airport. GoddamnNoise (203) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 12, 2017
355 ml. bottle @ Home. margus7 (59) - ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2017
Aroma: quite intense aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, pine, resin, citrus. Floral nuances, maybe honey, caramel and toffee too. The malts and toasted malts aromas show up when the beer gets warmed.
Appearance: light golden to golden color, low hazyness, light yellow head color. Medium head thickness. Low to medium retention. Low to medium Brussels' lacing. Creamy foam.
Taste: low to medium sweetness, medium bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of grapefruit, pine, resin, tropical fruits, citrus. Hints of malts and toasted malts in the background. Balance is on the hoppy bitter side but it's not too bitter. Sweet at first and increasingly bitter toward the finish.
Palate: medium body, oily texture, low to medium carbonation, very long dry finish with low to medium bitterness and very pleasant flavors of pine, resin, grapefruit. Hints of malts and toasted malts. Alcohol is not noticeable. No astringency.
Overall: appearance, aromas and flavors are quite good. This beer is about pine, resin, grapefruit and American hops. It's not too bitter and it's very pleasant, refreshing and drinkable. Quite complex aromas and flavors. Very good Session IPA.
One of the best Session IPA-s in my mind, suits well on Monday, on another days also :) sseb69 (1956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2017
Bouteille. Couleur ambrée pâle. mousse blanche. Nez de houblon floral et légèrement tropicaux. En bouche, malt et hebes fruitées, légèrement caramel. Bonne.

Bottle @ home. Clear golden colour with a medium sized white head. Smells hops, grapefruit, apricot, sweet, fruity, nice. Tastes hops, fruity, apricot, grapefruit, slightly watery but it’s not too bad, a hint of malts and grains. Has a nice sweetness to it. Soft carbo, thin body. laand78 (127) - Tibro, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2017
Can from Systembolaget 4,7%. Color is golden and clear with a medium white head. Aroma of hops and some fruit. Taste is a little tasteless and watery. An easy beer to drink

It was okay. Pretty hoppy. Taste quite like other IPAs but it is still pretty smooth to drink

Clear orange color with white head. Aroma of hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit. Pleasant medium bitter taste, notes of grape. Average carbonation, medium body. Everything seems to be in balance. Nothing too much, nothing too little. The only think I miss, is a bigger bottle. RalfH (5) - GERMANY - DEC 6, 2017 does not count
This is probably the best session IPA in the world. Full body beer with complex character, extensive hops flavors yet with 4.7 percent alcohol, still drinkable in quantity!! The name makes total sense!!
